Abstract
We report the first observation of the $\Xi^{-}$$\pi^{+}$ scattering mode of the $\Xi^{0}(1690)$, confirming the existence of this resonance. The $\Xi^{0}(1690)$ were produced by $\Sigma^-$ of 345 GeV/cmean momentum of copper and carbon targets. The mass and width are close to those observed earlier for the $\Xi^-(1690)$ in the $\Lambda K^-$ decay channel. The product of inclusive production cross section and branching ratio is given relative to that of the $\Xi^0(1530)$.
